    The webkit exploit probably work but they probably use the same exploit chain after the browser escape

    It's very surprising that they're still releasing updates for a discontinued console, but to be fair, they did get an idiot proof description of the exploit. Lesson for the future. I can't imagine this is worth the man hours in Europe or America, but in Japan the Vita was quite successful, so I imagine it made sense to patch.

    Sorry guys, I'm sure this was my fault. I wanted one of the cool colors so I ordered an used Orange Japanese 2000. It took forever to ship, but I got it on Friday and it was on 3.70.

    Factory firmware on was 3.50, so I was able to get a full 3.60 Henhaku mod on it. God did I just dodge a bullet with it.

    Bought the PSP Slim at EOL, never bothered with the Vita. What are the greatest benefits of hacking the Vita anyway?

    My Vita has 3.65 but is still on the original firmware. I should honesty hack it already.

    Interesting, I have suspected that they - Sony - may be able to fix and patch it (after all why not), but to think they had the will to do it... "wow" of sort.
    I guess they want to somewhat close Vita chapter "properly" without leaving any holes (or to think so at least :P), it's the matter of "honor" somewhat :P

    TheFlow purposely released the hack as he has at least one more ace up his sleeve.

    THEFLOW, WE NEED YOU BACK !

    They were pretty clear in the Trinity write-up and Twitter that this was their last project for the Vita scene.

    From the conclusion of the Trinity write-up

    We knew this was coming. The flow has retired and now Sony devs will finally sleep at night. Probably the last firmware version we're going to see for the vita. RIP

    I never purchased a the PS Vita so... yeah, but it looks like Sony is out for CFW like Nintendo is, or was.

    Ok how about this:

    Downgrading to 3.60

    Format

    Install Henkaku + Enso

    Recover my account using PSN spoof to access the store and download a game

    Hack to 3.70

    Possible?

    So, no write-ups for future exploits if there will be any I assume...

    And the Vita is a console they are no longer making by the way.

    But they are still selling digital Vita and PSP games so of course they had to make a patch.

    Because for the most part I have no need for it.
    I'd only be in fan translations but I have way too much of a backlog atm to care about them anytime soon.
